Imperial India-Style Brown Ale. TWENTY ONE is built on a foundation of dark specialty malts, framed by sturdy IBUs and crowned with a monumental dry hop addition of two of our favorites, Amarillo and Simcoe.

65 cl bottle @ hotel room, San Diego.
Pours dark ruby red color with a version sized beige head. Licorice and roasty malt on the nose, very faint hops and coffee. Bitter malts and chocolate on the flavor, faint coffee, mild hops and orange, some licorice too. Quite good even though the hops are not that crisp anymore, I like the licorice here.

Mep3222 (936) - East Greenbush, New York, USA - JUL 14, 2015
Piney resin hop aroma with some floral and a Caramelized malt backing. Taste is malty with a bitter hop finish, but enough malt to balance very well. Nice dark Caramelized malt, very hoppy, very full flavored. Nice beer but feels very bold. Not sticky palate but a sipper for sure. ---Rated via Beer Buddy for iPhone

Not a black IPA, but a "brown" IPA. And it is that. Strong DIPA all the way around. Malty notes are more brown than black -- slightly milder. Good.

Pours slightly hazy reddish brown with a off-white head. Aroma has notes of malt, caramel, cocoa, milk chocolate, orange and citrus. Taste is medium sweet and medium bitter with a long cocoa, milk chocolate, caramel and fruity finish. Body is medium to full, texture is oily, carbonation is soft. Very nice hoppy brown ale.
